It looks like Fierce Deity Link, a form Link can transform into using the Fierce Deity's Mask in Majora's mask. In addition to the white hair and cap this form also has three blue gems under the collar that you can see in your picture. Image from


Link has no written or spoken dialogue of note in any game, with the exception of two instances in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link. (Source) This doesn't mean that Link is a mute, per se (he can interact in conversations, after all), rather, Link's lack of dialogue is simply a design choice from Nintendo.


These images are from Hyrule Warriors.


Link carries the Triforce on his left hand, while Zelda and Gannondorf carry it on their right. Link also carries his sword in his left hand, so we know he's left handed. Zelda and Gannondorf both appear to be right-handed.


According to Zeldapedia, Humans are a race of people that include Hylians, Gerudo, round-eared non-Hylian humans, and possibly other groups. Hylians and Gerudo have been referred to both as human and by their more specific race. The round-eared, non-Hylian humans however, are simply called humans. They live in Hyrule during the time of A Link to the ...


SSB64: This Link is the Hero of Time from Ocarina of Time. The only other adult Link at the time of the game's release was the one from Zelda II, and that Link doesn't have the Hylian Shield or Boomerang that this Link wields. Melee: It's plainly obvious that the four Zelda characters are all from Ocarina of Time: Link has the Hylian Shield, Young Link has ...


In the original Super Smash Bros. and Melee it's the Link from Ocarina of Time. In Brawl, they changed it to the Twilight Princess Link. I figured this out by comparing the pictures of the Link from the Zelda games with his pictures from the SSB games. Ocarina of Time was only game out with that shield design when SSB64 and Melee came out. Twilight Princess ...


That looks like the Fierce Deity, which Link can transform into by using the Fierce Deity's Mask in Majora's Mask.


No. Well, not really. Link has a fairy companion in Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, and Phantom Hourglass, and all of them are female. That said, Link's traveling companion is not always female. In The Minish Cap, Ezlo (the eponymous minish cap) is male, but not really a fairy. In The Wind Waker, the King of Red Lions is also male, but, again, not a fairy.


As far as I can tell, Skyward Sword is the first game in the Zelda series to refer to humans in any capacity. Previous games have mentioned the Hylia, the original people of Hyrule (Link to the Past), the Hylians of contemporary Hyrule (LttP again) and the Gerudo (Ocarina of Time). At no time though have they made a distinction of species in the rather elfin-...


There were actually two Legend of Zelda games released between Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword: Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks, both of which were released for the Nintendo DS. The next original Legend of Zelda game that released after Skyward Sword was A Link Between Worlds, for the 3DS. See Wikipedia's article for a full chronology of releases. ...


Unfortunately, there is no game in which Farore holds a role as important as Din or Nayru in the Oracle games. Well, kind of. She was meant to appear in Mystical Seed of Courage along with Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons, but the game was cancelled due to the complexity of having to synchronize 3 games. As a result of having her own game cancelled, ...


There was supposed to be a third game featuring Farore, but Capcom decided that it would be too complex to link three games together. Instead, Farore cameos in both Oracle games in the Hall of Secrets as the Oracle of Secrets, where she is responsible for allowing the player to enter passwords that link the two games together. There has been no word from on ...


The NES titles run just fine. There are no worries there. The N64 titles run mostly fine. Sometimes they slow down and "lag" a bit. Get a bit choppy, but run surprisingly well for being emulated on the console that is next gen to it. Played all the way through Ocarina of Time with no problems. Played all the way through Majora's Mask with only 1 freeze. ...


It's definitely always been Farore. I haven't been able to find any definitive proof that it was ever spelled Fayore in any game. If it's possible that you misread it, then any number of other people could have, as well. This just happens to be a pretty big coincidence.


I believe what this text is referring to is the many incarnations of Link. In each Legend of Zelda game, you play as a similar but distinct hero. This is why you are able to name your character, and none of the Green-clad heroes are ever officially referred to as "Link" in-game. There don't appear to be many if any other references to great heroes of ...


In Four Swords, the first game in which Rupoors appeared (though called Black Rupees), collecting one resulted in Rupees being ejected from your wallet. The players could pick the scattered money back up, but this is still a decent explanation: Rupoors repel Rupees like opposite-polarity magnets. This doesn't fully explain why lost money cannot be ...


I actually thought that it was spelled "Fayore" as well. This thought, for myself, was revolving around the Ocarina of Time cartridge for N64 specifically and corrected elsewhere, presumably. That would lead me to think that if there was something leading multiple people toward this mispronunciation that it would be found there.
